Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) endowed with anisotropic DNA valency are an important class of materials, as they can assemble into complex structures with a minimal number of DNA strands. However, methods to encode 3D DNA strand patterns on AuNPs with a controlled number of unique DNA strands in a predesigned spatial arrangement remain elusive. In this work, a… CONTINUE READING
